LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT
12-Mar-18
                 
LIRARY NEWS              
The new furniture at the library has arrived. The delivery went well and the furniture looks great. The benches for the teen area are on back order and we will be updated on their status. Jodi Bailey has resigned her position as Library Assistant 1 and we have started the hiring process. She will be missed and we thank her for her service to the library. There were issues with the toilet in the children's area and Arlington hardware was called in as the Village did not have the appropriate equipment. The library was closed early on February 19th and all day on the 20th due to the school closing for inclement weather.
